15th century arch-braced collar rafter nave roof

The grade I listed church in Luckington is dedicated to St. Mary and St. Ethelbert and is thought to date from the 12th century. It is located within a minute or so walk from Luckington Court; they are charmingly grouped together.

In the 15th century there was a large amount of repair and re-building with alterations in the walls and nave and the majority of the windows also date from this time. The north porch is Georgian and there was further extensive restoration of St. Mary's in the 19th century, undertaken by Sir Arthur Blomfield. In 1872 the chancel and side chapel within the church were totally rebuilt. The Norman font in the church is extremely large with the bowl measuring 27 inches diameter and pictured in one of the east windows is William of Malmesbury, and in other windows are images of Mary and Ethelbert, to whom the church is dedicated. Within the north wall of the church is an engraving of the Lord's Prayer dating from 1663.
